As awareness regarding ecology increases among drivers, some characteristics of electric vehicles mean that they attract a greater interest. The basic factors determining the demand for electric cars include their pricing, access to charging stations and the cost per 1 kWh. Considering the above, the aim of this paper is to review the current areas of research into renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar energy and energy derived from vertical displacements of the car body associated with road roughness. The use of such solutions will allow the battery to be charged while the vehicle is in motion and extend the time of travel without stopping the vehicle for charging. The publication forms an overview of findings in the area and the scope of the research reported here relate to the most recent research. For this purpose, reviews of academic and industrial literature were carried out.
